Social Studies

Connect students to the stories that make us who we are
See our programs Meet our content partners

Rich programs challenge assumptions and encourage critical thinking

With partners like HISTORY® and Google®, we’re creating a new arena in the classroom where students can relive, re-imagine, and reflect on our past and present.

Our content adheres to both Core Standards and the C3 Framework, giving students a solid foundation for excelling in college, career, and civic life.

We help teachers make the most of limited class time and allow students to learn on their own terms through differentiated instruction and interactive tools.

Experience our social studies programs in action.
